Chanel Bleu Illusion de Chanel Collection for Fall 2012


This September: Chanel Bleu Illusion de Chanel Collection

Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, borrows the intangible hues of summer blue. Like a cloud-strewn sky, eyes take up shimmering reflections that change with the light. The juvenile grace of an almost nude face showcases eyes with marine depths, mellowed by the radiance of blue tones.

On eyelids, ILLUSION D’OMBRE takes on a scintillating and satiny effect that makes eye makeup glow with each bat of the lashes. Two airy shades of grey blue, one pale, DESTINATION, and the other more intense, APPARITION, adapt to all faces. Eyeshadows are applied according to inspiration: in sheer washes or deep colour blocks, in monochrome or gradations. Mascara-laden lashes accentuate the graphic tracing of the eye contour with a sophisticated note. LE CRAYON YEUX BLEU AÉRIEN borders the eyelids with an intense stroke, like a horizon line over the ocean.
For the final step of this chromatic journey, LE VERNIS SKY LINE sweeps nails with a delicate shade of pearly blue that captures and softens the light in its pearly reflections.

Chanel Riviere Illusion d’Ombre Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow

Chanel Riviere Illusion d’Ombre Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a pale shimmering green with subtle golden shimmer. A warmer, seafoam green, if you will. I couldn’t think of any shades that really were that similar. Urban Decay Money is darker, bluer. MAC Fresh & Mint is cooler-toned, almost bluish. Dior Garden Pastels was darker, more intense.

Chanel Coco Noir Eau de Parfum for Fall 2012


This September: Chanel Coco Noir Eau de Parfum

“Before me, no one would have dared dress in black,” Gabrielle Chanel once said. Black, an iconic colour of Chanel, now inspires a luminous new fragrance for women: COCO NOIR. Striking top notes of Grapefruit and Bergamot accentuate the floral accord with Rose and Jasmine, while Indonesian Patchouli and Sandalwood notes add warmth to the seductive scent.

Created by Jacques Polge, master perfumer at Chanel, COCO NOIR marks a return to Oriental fragrances for the House. Recalling his journey to unveil the mystery of black through fragrance, Monsieur Polge explains, “The night vision of the ‘Orient that starts and ends in Venice’ imposed itself upon me, and that is where I wanted to go.”

Availability: September 2012 — Eau de parfum Spray is $98/1.7 oz. and $130/3.4 oz.
